• Jerboa because it’s the closest I have found to RIF other than Liftoff, which no longer works since most instances have updated to 0.19 and above.

    The dude working in it had a kid (made an announcement for it) and then hasn’t seemed to work on it since. Which is understandable, I guess. Kids ruin everything. 😩

    Jerboa. Because it’s fully open source and it’s the first one I installed and I have yet to have enough of a problem with it to look for alternatives. (The left-right swipe features are… not a good thing, but they’re not bad enough to make me want to switch.)

    Alexandrite is the best web front-end for me because of the 2-column view.

    The amount of people not knowing what a “web app” is, is seriously concerning.

    Anyway, I tried “old” and Alexandrite, but I just ended up sticking with the default. I find “old” ugly, and on Alexandrite, I couldn’t find my saved posts. Maybe it has been fixed since, but the default one works for me best.

    Hey OP, I love you! I never used a Lemmy WebApp because I see no sense in it, but I tried Photon because of some comments in your post and holy fuck I have missed so much! It’s incredible that I can even have two accounts at the same time from different instances without changing the URL!

        Hey, I FUCKING love Photon and as soon as I can I’m going to donate to the project, but I have three questions: Is there any kind of official community for the project? And, is there a way to search communities and only communities? I mean, I can search for posts and then search for communities where that post may be, but can I search for communities directly, and lastly, how can I join a community within Photon?

          • Hey, thanks! The official community for Photon is !photon@lemdro.id (lemdro.id has helped a lot with the project and feedback, so I decided they should be it’s home.)
          • To search communities and only communities, you can either press the globe icon in the navbar (which is better for searching just communities), or you can use the search button and filter by communities.
          • To join a community in Photon, you can click subscribe in the explore page (globe icon) or you can go to the community, click the three dots at the top right, and click subscribe. (On a wide enough screen, the subscribe button along with community info will be on the right.)

    Is this thread intended for 1. Android/mobile users 2. iOS/mobile users 3. People with computers/mouse/keyboard or what? It seems most Lemmy threads are pretty exclusively aimed at mobile users.

    Arctic and Mlem for iOS.

    Arctic is my primary, it was the first that I know of to include admin tools, the single developer is super accessible and on top of for resolving bugs and does a good job at supporting markdown both in the editor and the viewer.

    Mlem is my backup if I need to access 2 different spots on the Lemmy-verse. It has a great viewer and interface but is missing a markdown editor.
